2015 Reflection :)

12357696_191837337832701_1629850279_n(1)

Well Today hasn’t exactly started of the best. I still feel slightly ill, because I’m just over a bug. There was a couple of other things That made me feel a bit down this morning but I have copped on and decided to push it aside because it’s the last day of 2015 and I want to try make it end well. So on a happier note …here goes a reflection.

This years been quite the year. I have done so much. I have had so many good memories. I have also had quite a few bad memories and sad moments. They made me stronger and I am extremely grateful to have experienced both. 2015 has been one of the best years of life despite the rocky patches. I have had so much fun and have experienced so many new things.

I went to Rome, Italy with my Mum, my friend and friend mum (Kinda like my second Mum to be honest.)….. I also don’t say mum it’s just that WordPress is being a pain and won’t let me say Mam. I had the most amazing time there. I fell in love with the city instantly. I dealt well with my anxiety for the majority of the trip. I got to visit the Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Vatican City, The Piazza De Popolo and so many other wonder places in Rome. We walked for hours and hours each day, getting to see so many amazing places and we got to eat such lovely Italian foods (My dream , like come on!, Pizza and Pastas galore.)  All with the best company. We stayed in a small little hotel room together, which was quite fun (Despite somebody’s extreme snoring, which led her to be beaten with pillows in her sleep .) We had a fantastic weekend away and It was the best Christmas present I had ever received ( Thanks Mam!). 😀

I also got to go on a school trip to Berlin. The capital of Germany. Yet again I fell in love with city. I became quite attached to everything about it. The people. The buildings. The history. The sights. Everything really. It was a amazing trip. I got to spend time with some of my good friends. I got to see so many cool,historical things like The Berlin Wall, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Bunkers, Concentration camps, Holocaust Memorial and so much more. I learned a lot about the history of Berlin. I also got to do so much fun stuff like going to Berlin zoo, Going shopping in Kaufhaus Dewestens (Where I bought nothing, that place is so damn expensive.) Going bowling and just spending time back in the hostel running between rooms and laughing with friends. It was a truly great experience and I am glad to have gone. Thanks to my Mum again and of course my school teachers for organizing the trip and taking us. 🙂

I also had so much fun,happy memories at home with my family and friends. I got to have a amazing boxing day with all my aunts,uncles,cousins etc from one side of the family. I went out for the day with my best friend and family to Emo court on a really warm day during the summer. I got to go shopping several times with my friends in Newbridge and Portlaois. I went to the cinema a couple of times. I went to friends birthday parties and had a amazing time. My friends even threw me a surprise birthday party which was lovely 🙂

I got to stay at home and annoy my brothers and parents a lot (I’m a great daughter and sister. 😛 ) I got to laze around a lot and binge watch TV shows and Youtube for hours. I even got to go to yet another Bribry,Candice and Dodie Clark gig in the Academy.

I started Transition Year in school. Which was a pretty big change to normal school curriculum. I am now doing subjects I haven’t  done before and I am talking to new people which is great!:) This year in TY I have done so many cool things like go to the Ploughing,Gone to Roll and Bowl,Gone to Killary Adventure Centre and so much more. Which all have been amazing. We also had so many talks and guest speakers in for TY and I have loved all of them surprisingly. They have been interesting and educational and I really enjoy them. I know at the start I was thinking I would hate TY (Being away from some friends, doing new things,coping with anxiety etc) But I actually never want it to end. I really love it.

During 2015 I also started this blog! Which is pretty damn cool. I love blogging now and I love everyone on this site. You are all so lovely and supportive. I love reading others blog posts and I love talking to other bloggers. I was not expecting to love blogging this much and I was definitely not expecting everyone to be so lovely on here. This so far has been a fun journey and I am grateful to have met so many nice people. I hope you all have a amazing 2016! I wish you all the best because you all really deserve it. (No need for names because This is to every single one of you!)

There has been so many other wonderful experiences this year. I just can’t write them all because that would be way to long of a blog post!. I have Journalled throughout all this year (I actually did it …for a entire year, surprisingly. I went through so many Diaries and pens :’) but Yay.)

I am truly thankful for all that this year has brought , good and bad. I am glad of the lessons I have learnt and the mistakes I have made (There was a lot and I’m sure there’s many left to come). I am thankful for the people who came and went. Also to the ones who stuck it out with me.

2015 has really been a mental year.

I attempted to keep it shortish :’) Sorrrry 😛

Life Is A Lovely Mess.

12237116_196454567355480_49565183_n

The metaphor ‘Life is like a roller-coaster’ , as cliché as it is. It’s pretty damn accurate.

Everyone has their ups and downs in life. Life is a unbalanced scale. Everyone wants to find a perfect balance in their life between the good and bad moments. I personally don’t think its possible to have a constant perfect balance. Sure you can have it for some time , but nothing lasts forever. Happiness won’t last forever but neither will sadness or any other emotion for that matter.

Everyone strives to find their self and become better in life. Everyone want’s to feel content. We all want the feeling of pure peace,Zen and complete happiness.

In life we all grow and change. We find ourselves as we age and mature. We never remain the same, we are in a never-ending cycle of change. What we love,hate,dream etc. will all change as time passes. Their is always room and time for change.

Life can be absolutely hectic and chaotic. It can push us to our limits. It can knock us down. It can leave us feeling helpless and alone and feeling like utter crap…..

Then again life can Spectacular!. It can make you feel like your floating on happiness. It can make you glow with excitement and wonder. It can make you feel thrilled and fulfilled.

Nobody has it perfect all the time. Everyone has down moments in life. Especially when we least expect them and don’t want them. We feel like were stuck in a pit of misery.

Then again everyone has the chance to be happy and feel good. It just takes a change of balance to do that and you never now what change is going to happen.

Everyone has the capability to enjoy life and live.

It’s just a matter of time . You never know when life is going to take a turn for the better.

We all just have to sit it and out and see what life deals us. Sure we might get a crappy hand of cards but Heck! we could get a full house on the next deal 🙂

I am thankful for my many struggles in life and the many yet to come. Without the struggles and bad moments I wouldn’t of discovered my hope and my strength.

Hope is what keeps everyone going. Hope is one of the most important things in life, it’s the one thing that keeps us going. It gives us the chance to experience everything we can that life throws at us.

So that’s that, a  random ramble of my thoughts ..pretty much I think Life’s  lovely mess.

I could write a lot more about this topic but this is just my current stream of thought. It probably will change and I might share another  post similar to this in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

2015 Blogger Awards. :)

12224073_1477906149184326_422564143_n

I can already tell this post is going to take awhile to type xD       Linking blogs and choosing who to nominate is just way to darn difficult.

So recently a amazing blogger called theambivert came up with the 2015 blogger awards!:) Which is a pretty fantastic idea. It’s been taking over my entire reader which is amazing, It shows how connected and lovely each and every blogger is.

Weirdly nostalgic.

12434984_942577855826569_1797029922_o.jpg

So I’m currently sat at my Grandads computer typing this blog post. It feels so strange. I haven’t used this computer in years!. To be honest I don’t even think my grandad has either. It’s all dusty and the mouse is stiff.

I feel weirdly nostalgic. I rember sitting on this computer when I was much younger. I would play silly little games like Club Penguin and Yoville (using my mothers facebook account of course because I wasn’t aloud my own.) I was so happy. It’s weird to think how much I have grown and how much has changed.

I was probally around 6 or 7. We would visit Dublin a lot more back then. I would always use this old desktop pc and sit in the corner of my Nanny and Grandads room. Like I currently am now. I would sit just like now. Squished,crossed legged into this old black leather swirly chair,with rips in the arm. Typing away and just being happy and slightly irritated by how uncomfortable this chair is and was. (It’s soft and all but I will never be used to sitting at a desk!)

I would spend hours on the computer getting off it every now and then (sometimes willingly,sometimes not…Hey, Club Penguin was important to me!) so my uncle and grandad could use it. Then as I grew older along with my eldest,younger brother I would have to give time to him on it also.

I was of course his influence to join the great weird world of the internet 🙂 (even though I doubt he will admit it).

Also Internet explorer being my browser of choice back then. I am currently using it now,again for the first time in years. I have become so used to Google Chrome and Mozzila Firefox. This is such a odd feeling using it again. Not sure if it’s this dinosouar computer ,crap broswer or just the fact that this computer hasn’t had some love in awhile but It’s slow as heck!. (I am so impatient,I think this post has taken over 30 mintues to type and It’s not even done!.)

I don’t remeber it being this slow and annoying back then. Well I guess I didn’t know much better.

To think this old dusty thing  was what started my eternal love for the Internet. My neverending addiction to silly virtual worlds and online games. To social media and to my beloved youtube. This was the start of a huge part of my life and that’s pretty damn weird to think about.

If I had never been introduced to this computer by my grandad and uncle, what would I be like now?. Would I even be blogging?. Would I even use the internet?. These are pretty scary questions for me to think about because the internet is a huge part of my daily life.

Thanks to this computer my addiction to electronics has evolved. Because of this computer I have gone through many  a console. From nintendos,phones and playstations to even my own labtop!. Oh wow …this really feels weird writing this and thinking about this.

Uh oh!. Gotta go home now D:.

Bye computer. Think I might have a bit of editing to do on this post later.

Also the photo is of me,my nan and grandad when I was little :’)
